Marlin Fishing Lizard Island Style
What can I say… Beautiful, idyllic location, amazing snorkelling over the giant clam gardens, the famous Marlin Bar and of course, famous for Giant Black Marlin Fishing!
Lizard Island is a national park locate on the Great Barrier Reef, Queensland Australia, 1624 km northwest of Brisbane. Lizard Island is famous for many things but most importantly (well to fisher man / women alike) Black Marlin Fishing due to its close proximity to the ribbon reef. Many a Grander Black Marlin has been caught off the reef around Lizard Island which is why we happily charter from that location each year during the marlin season, September to December. The 26th Lizard Island Black Marlin Classic has a 1000LB tag and release club for that very reason!
Lizard Island is also home to a beautiful award winning resort for those who want a little luxury attached to their fishing charter. Lizard Island was named Best Resort in Australia at the Australian Gourmet Traveller 2012 Travel Awards and comes highly recommended by our charter clients.
